December Blogging Meme Topic #8:
What are your thoughts about Sherlock series 3 and/or series 4?

I fear that my answer on this score is brief, and probably not terribly engaging. I didn't like Season 3 much at all, and I know absolutely nothing about Season 4. I love Seasons 1 and 2, still, and that's about where the scope of what I count as canon ends. The screenwriting turned too careless for my taste in Season 3; I feel like they're mocking their audience, and not kindly, either. I have better things to do with my time on the television front (my most recent hours-spent-watching-things investments have been In the Flesh and Six Feet Under, and I haven't been disappointed).

Unless Season 4 is a miraculous turn-around in the extreme, I see no reason why I'd ever go back to it. Nothing puts me off more than when canon goes OOC/otherwise off the rails. If you can't rely on canon to stay true to the compass you thought it had set, what use is canon?

I am hoping for the miraculous turn around but I doubt it will happen. Alas.

I've reached the point where I just don't hesitate to ditch something if the creators make it that obvious they they have no concept of narrative integrity.

Or character integrity, for that matter :P

That's what made it so bad - plot holes can be fixed with fanfic, or ignored altogether, as you explore alternate stories, but if you can't pin the characters down, if they make no sense or are all over the map, what is left?
